Andrew Garfield Reflects On His "Disenchanting" Time As THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN

By this point, Andrew Garfield has got to be getting sick and tired of questions about the few short years he spent playing Spider-Man. However, the British actor is more than willing to shed some light on the experience, and his latest comments are very telling indeed. Read on for details!

It's hard to feel too sorry for this guy, right? 

Once this press tour for 99 Homes wraps up, Andrew Garfield can probably look forward to no longer being quizzed about his time spent playing Spider-Man (though depending on the timing, he'll likely be asked for his thoughts on Tom Holland's take on Peter Parker in Captain America: Civil War next year). When The Independent asked the actor to reflect on the experience, he told them: "There were beautiful things about it and also privileged things about it which I struggled with and then some really disenchanting things that happened," he revealed in what is no doubt a veiled reference to the behind the scenes chaoas which gave us The Amazing Spider-Man 2
 
"Hollywood is the epicentre of worldly values where a piece of art is judged, not on how many lives it touches or what change it makes, but as long as that film makes money," Garfield continued. "Only then is it a success. Or as long as that film gets awards then it’s a success, its worthy to be here. I feel lucky that I now have that awareness that something is damaging and can separate me from just being in the world, and I really want to be in the world even though it’s painful. I’d much rather be in the world than in some ivory tower somewhere." Phew, that's some pretty heavy stuff right there. You've got to feel for Garfield though. He went from being a relative unknown brought out on stage to be announced as taking over the role of one of the world's most iconic superheroes to starring in a critically panned failure which was a commercial flop (mostly due to how much Sony spent on it) and pretty much killed the franchise at Sony.
